Banteay Torp

Banteay Torp

Constructed : Late 12th/Early 13th century
Religion: N/A
Style : N/A
King : Jayavarman VII ★ 1181 - 1218 ★
Location : 9km South of Banteay Chhmar.

Comment : Banteay Torp (Fortress of the Army) is another sandstone temple with five towers located south of Banteay Chhmar. Not so big but the shape is impressive. Banteay Torp constructed around the same time as Banteay Chhmar, it may be a tribute to the army of Jayavarman VII, which confirmed Khmer dominance over the region by conclusively defeating the Chams.
